Vending Machine Business Tips – How To Find A Good Deal When Buying Your Vending Machines
How do I know if I am getting a good deal in purchasing a machine? I have had people send me emails before, saying, “I bought this type of machine,” or “There is this opportunity where I can buy a bunch of machines for this price. I am just wondering if I am getting a good deal or not.” The first thing that I would do is to go and find two to three vending machine distributors in your local area and see what they are selling. Find out what types of machines they are selling and their pricing.
Second go to a website like eBay or your local buy and sell website. There is a great buy and sell site that is all over the U.S. and in Canada. It is called Kijiji. One of those sites can totally direct you. When you pull up the page on eBay and you type in the words vending machines, you will see all the different ones. You will know by looking at the prices and the different types if you’re getting a good deal on a machine.
What you have to be careful about is buying new vending machines that are really over priced. The last thing that you want to do is spend more than you have to. So it is really worth it to do some research and homework before buying any vending machines.
I always even now will get two to three quotes and shop around for the best prices and equipment. I am not only looking for the best price but I am looking for a quality reliable machine that I can bring into my inventory that will last me many years.
Another way to find good deals on vending machines is to find a local vending operator in your area who has a few in storage and is looking to unload a couple for a good price.
Just call them up and ask if the could sell you a few machines. But remember to do some research first so you don’t get ripped off in the process. Usually vending operators always have a few machines in storage some more than others. Just depends on how aggressive they are with getting them out of storage and onto locations. You can find these operator’s by just looking in your local yellow page directory or even at the places where they buy their wholesale products that they place in their machines.
Again always take the time to know what you are buying and spending your hard earned money on. By doing this you can avoid a lot of headaches and aggravation in the long run.
